Jesse was born in Miami, FL, playing on beaches as a boy, the sky bronzing him forever and the sea turning his heart lyrical.

“And to love such a librarian requires a surrendering to her eccentricities, a bowing to her pathological quietness, an obeisance to a reticence that is utterly untreatable. If you cannot commit to this sort of dedication, then let her be. Let her wander in wonder among her books and live out her days in her own world without you.”
Jesse Giles Christiansen, Pelican Bay

“I should have known right then that I was dreaming. But oh how we hang on to dreams even when we are gifted the largest of clues.”
